Discover the Rich History of Argentine Wines
Welcome to the world of Argentine wines, where New World innovation meets a history that stretches back over 400 years. This legacy of winemaking began with Spanish missionaries who planted vineyards to secure their supply of sacramental wines. Their practices, similar to what would later happen in California, were pivotal in shaping the Argentine wine landscape. Despite the challenging high and dry conditions around the Andes Mountains, these early settlers harnessed indigenous agricultural techniques that channeled melting snow and ice from the peaks to irrigate their vineyards.
Once a stable water supply was established, the valleys nestled in the foothills of the Andes provided an ideal environment for vine cultivation. Warm, sun-drenched days paired with crisp, cool nights created the perfect conditions for grape growth.
In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the Argentine wine industry experienced a renaissance as Italian and Spanish immigrants flooded into South America, bringing with them new grape varieties and a wealth of winemaking expertise. European grape varieties, including the iconic Malbec native to southwest France, found a welcoming home in the fertile Argentine soil. Malbec emerged as Argentina's signature red grape, known for its deep color, enticing aromas of berry fruit, plums, and honey, and the ability to ripen to perfection. These qualities result in wines with a velvety texture and long-lasting flavors, especially when oak-aged, adding dimensions of vanilla and soft tannins, ultimately creating wines with exceptional structure. Malbec is the perfect companion for beef dishes and even pairs delightfully with chocolate and red berry desserts.
On the white wine front, Torrontés takes the spotlight as Argentina's celebrated grape, producing uniquely aromatic and vibrant wines. This variety is an excellent choice for seafood and spicy dishes, enhancing your dining experience with its distinct character.
